Spring is Here.... I Wish!!

Hello to you all and I hope you're keeping well.

I had a set of nesting dies arrive in the post today so I just had to have a play and thought they'd be ideal to use with a new stamp I'd just inked up. The theme I was following was 'spring' and I'd got halfway through making the card when the snow started falling, so the title of this post is a bit of wishful thinking.

The light wasn't too good so this photo is a bit blurred. I shall have to take another tomorrrow in the daylight.

Okay so here's some better photos taken in the daylight

This is what I used
Image - 'A fairy resting on mushroom' by Tina Wenke from Stampavie
                 ~ coloured with Promarkers and Stickles added on the wings
Dies - Lifestyle Quickcutz nesting frame 9 (this is a set of 8 dies)
        - Marianne Creatable LR0157 decorative elegance, Cheery Lynn DL112 butterfly
Paper - Wild Rose Studio 'Butterfly Garden'
Stash - flowers, pearls, paper hearts

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Delightful challenge 'Think Spring / Use Pastel Colours'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Get In Shape'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Heart and Flowers'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Pearls and Swirls'
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Flowers and Pearls'
Stamp and Create challenge 'Spring is Coming'
Deep Ocean challenge 'Letter B' (my card has a bird and butterfly)
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Something Old & Something New' (new nesting dies & stamp, all the rest is old)
I Love Promarkers challenge 'One For the Girls'
